I had some scraps left over from the Be Mine/Big Love wall hanging, so I made a mug mat for my mom. I'd like to write a full tutorial but I don't have time today, and you might want to make one right away!
I followed Beth's mini heart tutorial at Smazoochie using her dimensions for the 4" heart. Then I made 16 HST units that are 2.5" unfinished (2" finished). Bonnie Hunter and Marianne Hatton finally convinced me to use the Easy Angle ruler for half square triangles and I love it! You should use the method that works best for you.

I had fun with the straight parallel lines of quilting. I love the area where they intersect under the heart. Let's ignore the fact that I chopped off the bottom point of the heart. I told a friend this week that there is a time and a place for perfectionism. This was not the time or the place!
